Visiting Cape Town? Stay in De Waterkant at Capital Mirage. Luxe accommodation, hip decor; free parking and wifi. Special rates apply until September. And there’s a Sky Bar…

Even if you live in Cape Town, why not book a room for a night?

(See last paragraph for special offer rates; it’s waaay less than you think.)

It’s not often I get to play tourist in my hometown, and after my experience of a night at the Capital Mirage in De Waterkant, I might just make a habit of it.

I first discovered the Capital Mirage at a media launch early June and was intrigued on the spot. It’s everything that a millennial urban hotel should be, and it’s quite something.

Plus, it’s got the location, location, location thing bang on right.

I’ve never been exactly sure what to call De Waterkant, perched as it is on the cusp of downtown Cape Town and the Atlantic Seaboard, betwixt the mountain and the sea. Suffice to say, the arrival of Capital Mirage makes it firmly Uptown in my book.

65 luxury studios and apartments are all self-catering, with better appliances and more space than your average city flat; the fittings are plush , the furnishings opulent, the whole edgy and chic. It’s sophisticated, fresh and funky, all at once. Muted grey backdrops make the stunning bolts of colour splashed everywhere really *pop* out; clever use of bronze and metallics add patina and lustre. The public spaces and mini-lobbies on each floor are so groovy, you’ll want to whatsapp friends to dash over for drinks – but THAT is something best left to one of the most stunning spaces I’ve seen for a long time: The Vue Sky Bar with its rooftop pool at the apex of the building.

Think: wraparound floor-to-ceiling glass walls with jaw-dropping vistas of forever. Think: ice blue with shots of gold and smooth white decor. Think drop dead glam.

Think fun, baby.

The Vue has several clever nooks and seating arrangements, including dining areas, so you’ll never feel crowded. Add a very sexy bar serving the latest cocktails and some classy gins, vodkas and brandies, and you have yourself your prime destination come summer.

The Vue also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for hotel or outside guests. And I can tell you from personal experience, you haven’t lived till you’ve seen dawn over Table Mountain and Bokaap while waiting for your eggs and bacon to be served. It’s magnificent. Just…magnificent. Looking for somewhere to pop the question? Take ’em to early breakfast at The Vue. No way they’ll turn you down. Just. No. Way.

The Vue Sky Bar has a moreish and tempting selection of small plates as bar-or-anytime-else food, and they cater for events too. Why not drop them a line and see what they’re up to? Contact info.thevue@gmail.com

The Capital Mirage offers a selection of luxury and superior studios, and spacious one-, two-, or three-bedroom apartments. All have luxurious bedding and soft furnishings, immaculate en-suite bathrooms, well-equipped kitchenettes and lounges with oversized LED television. And oh! don’t forget the Nespresso machines and complimentary pods, the thickly padded carpets, the sleek lamps, the writer’s nook with comfy desk and chair, the abundance of plugs for all your devices…Yep, Capital Mirage has got it covered for the modern urban traveller.

Some of the finest retail therapy is but a stroll away, and the neighbourhood has a wide choice of dining establishments to choose from. Best of all, the hotel is hugely accessible and supremely well situated for exploring the best of Cape Town, and for reaching the airport.

Enjoy world class services with in-room dining, complimentary uncapped high speed wifi, HD satellite television, complimentary parking and scheduled shuttles to the V&A Waterfront and Cape Town International Convention Centre.

But hey! get a head start on the crush and go now, because Capital Mirage has special offers on accommodation rates until September. Check here for booking details: Capital Mirage Reservations and Enquiries
